About me and fanfiction
I revived this account to find and continue reading fanfics of the TV shows I’m currently watching and a few I’m nostalgic about. So my dancing card says:
I’m currently watching White Collar: Because it makes me happy!
This show is something else really. It’s very positive and light, funny, smart; it’s super classy, this show is not afraid to be posh; their locations are all over NYC and include real art galleries, museums and gorgeous architectural spots indoors and outdoors. New York City, and specially Manhattan area, could be considered a secondary character in its own right.
Lots of tongue in cheek bromance, secondary characters to die for and good clean fun.
Other shows I still read fanfic about:
I still occasionally read Stargate stories, SG-1 and Atlantis are one big show in my mind! I read Gen and Slash for these shows: My OTP’s are Jack/Daniel and John/Rodney. No het… especially not Jack/Carter. I don’t character bash Carter either, just don’t see it working…ever.
To a lesser extent I read Criminal Minds: it’s on my fanfic dance list but only because I favor the few slash Hotch/Reid stories that, unlike the show, don’t focus with such loving detail on the unsubs.
I like the team and their interactions to the point that I stop only to watch the 2 or 3 minutes of levity or personal development and then just change the channel and skip the rest. The show, I find is written more to make the criminals into main characters and then the team turns translucent and cartoony in comparison. The good guys are like a sounding board for the bad guy more than any kind of driving force in the storyline…. which just makes me sad and long for a good fic to make up for that huge empty spot.
Stories I wrote?
Wrote 2 anime WIPs - Saint Seija - many years ago. (if you read them: Sorry, if you haven't guessed by now, I have no immediate plans to continue either of them)
About Anime in general: I became disillusioned with the anime genre about a decade ago. Neither the writers nor the producers seem to be able to create nuances in their stories. They are simply written for kids, it's an obvious fact... It takes a too much to creative power (and not a little dose of insanity) to make for example: Grover and the Cookie Monster into real people. It's just ends up being a bizarre experiment most of the time.
I still admire the art and graphics for their simplicity and economy of form, remember it as fun to draw and it became a big influence in my graphic style... Unfortunately, the same economical simplicity was also applied to character development and storylines… this became glaringly obvious as I matured.
There are some amazing anime based fics out there! Loved reading them too and many surpass canon by so much it's just sad they aren't put into film or drawn into graphic novels themselves.
I firmly believe that, when fanfiction surpasses canon and the characters are so plain that even teenaged fic writers have to all but breath life into them, just to get a half decent story…. I don’t feel the canon story matters anymore and would rather see all those good stories turned into original fiction instead of wasted breath.
